I've just received an e-mail tracking update from FedEx, relating to a package sent by the Graduate Program containing (apparently) HLS Admissions Material.

Did anyone receive the same e-mail?

Ciao!

The other guy (the 4th BR. element) is from Brasília, corporate/banking lawyer at a big law firm.

This supports the thesis that HLS accepts approx. 4 Brazilians each year, 3 from the "Rio-Sao Paulo Axis" and 1 from other states!

[]s


Yeah, really weird! But Carioca, let's wait for the traditional "4th Brazilian Element" rsrs... perhaps the "Rio X São Paulo Tournament" might end in a draw! ;-)

To all: as to multiple "same country" admissions, it depends on where are U from... Brazil, China, India and some Western Europe and SE Asian countries may score more than one student at HLS, I guess.

And the city IS NOT SAO PAULO!!!!!! UHUUUUUU :) hehehehe

I am from Mexico and I received an e-mail last night from Fulbright's office saying I was admitted!!! HLS sent an e-mail on Monday confirming I had been admitted but that official letters were going to be sent by mail. No information about financial aid yet...


Hi,

First congrats, could you please share a bit about your credentials, professional experience and schooling? Just so I have some idea... thank you and congrats again!

Good luck to all.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply, however, why do a JD when you already have a law degree and an LLM could serve you the same purpose (if the purpose is getting a job in the US). Could you kindly put more light on it so we can get some suggestions too, Thank you.

Actually job opportunities for LLMs and JDs in the US are quite different. In general, you get job offers as an LLM if the firm has some kind of interest (meaning clients with interest) in your country.

And even for JDs the opportunities are getting scarce. Some firms are postponing hirings from this year to the next and offering money for some JDs to stay home or do volunteer work until next year. And I'm talking about Harvard students...

An LLM degree - even from a top law school - is no guarantee (at all) that you'll get a job in the US.

Hi,
But what about the one who is a foreign law graduate but is a US citizen? Is the job situation any better for such a person? Thank you.

Precisely what I mean to say is the person who is LLB from UK and then an LLM from the US, how is the job situation? Thanks.

Ok bassically, you learn more in a 3 year program that on any 1 year program. In most LLM programs you will take clases with the jd program so you are able to learn a third of what the learn.

LLM programs are not subsidized by the law schools, so there is no $ for scholarships.

So at the end you might graduate with debt froma 1 year program. If you get a good LSAT test score you can get a scholarship and graduate debt free from a more comprehensive program .
